How does our body absorb protein?
All proteins are made up of chains of amino acid bonds. These links are formed by the union of two or more amino acids, having therefore: di- or tri- peptides, or tetra or oligo- peptides.
When our digestive system receives protein, from any source, it must first proceed with the segmentation or fractioning of these amino acid bonds that form the proteins through the corresponding enzymatic secretion, to then reach the absorption phase and from there transport to the tissues of the whole body, through blood flow.
The way our body absorbs proteins is through peptides at the intestinal level, specifically di- and tripeptides.
Therefore, hydrolysed proteins are thought to be the most effective in terms of absorption.
